Kamloops Councillor should be recused.

This petition had 140 supporters

Kamloops City Councillor Donovan Cavers (and others) current and past extreme bias with regards to the KGHM Ajax Application are in clear violation of the Community Charter.  The intent of the Community Charter (Sections 100-109) states that a member of council must come to each application with an open mind, and be capable of persuasion. I ask you does the one finger salute towards a major industry application represent an open mind?  Do you consider marching in protest of KGHM , explosive and explicit emails to city staffers or demands for KGHM to "go away" as being open minded? Councillor Cavers has been warned by city staff in the past with threats of censorship and on one occasion he was forcibly recused from another city proposal he was openly vocal against. We believe that his (and others) behaviours and relentless bias against the Ajax Proposal disqualifies him from attendance, comment or vote of ANYTHING AJAX! 

City staff have been unable to use the Community Charter to sensor Councillor Cavers due to the location of this industry proposal, its outside city limits. We do not accept that and demand that if our City Council is going to spend hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars on a proposal "outside city limits" then the Community Charter applies! Councillors with extreme bias should be recused, Period!

As Citizens and tax payers the have the right to expect representation that fits all persons across the board and we expect that the Community Charter would be far reaching covering all project proposals where this City Councillor (and others) have refused to remain "open minded or capable of persuasion."

Please sign our petition which demands only what we are entitled to as Tax Payers. That Councillor Donovan Cavers who's bias can be documented be recused from partaking in public information sessions, public hearings, discussion and or votes with regards to the KGHM Ajax Application.  This should be expected of all council!
